Utterly brilliant!
27 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I also recommend heartily the 2001 Met and 1994(with Grundheber and Meier) performances. This Wozzeck is utterly brilliant. I appreciate the opera highly, even if I don't completely love it(mainly because I am not the biggest fan of expressionistic music), and this production and the other two does nothing to lower my perception. The costumes and sets add much to the opera's atmosphere, and the staging is frightening, eerie and moving especially the Tavern scene and when Wozzeck drowns himself. The orchestra bring so much drama and intensity to the difficult score, and Claudio Abbado's conducting full of command, never less than commanding, plus I also loved his facial expression at the applause starting. The singing is just wonderful. Franz Grundheber could've done with more poetry(compared to Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau under Bohm) but he is nonetheless superb vocally and dramatically. Hildegard Behrens is a touching and self-loathing Marie, Heinz Zednik's singing does verge towards tonal at times but his characterisation is suitably slimy and Aage Haughland is a sinister Doctor. Phillip Langridge and Walther Raffeiner are just as fine as Andres and the Drum Major respectively. In a nutshell, a brilliant Wozzeck. 10/10 Bethany Cox
